The truffle pizza is life-changing.10/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionally good food -Exceptionally good food - different tastes but not so overdone as to be only for show. Will return.10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA little disappointingI always enjoy Buca, but this trip was a bit of a disappointment. our pizza was cold and our waiter inattentive. Both are unusual in my experience. I think the waiter thought he was good... but we couldn't get his attention. to tell him we'd like another glass of wine, to tell him that the pizza was cold, to get our bill. the flavours of the food were good as always, but this has left me feeling a little less enthusiastic about Buca.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a delicious meal hereWe had a delicious meal here and the service was really incredible. We'll definitely be back!7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experienceWe had a great experience at Buca and would definitely recommend it to others. The portions were not huge but the flavours are amazing and we enjoyed our dinner very much.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was spectacular;The service was spectacular; didn't have to lift a finger other than to feed myself. The food came out very timely, and we were given new cutlery including side plates with every course. Atmosphere was relaxed, unassuming, unpretentious and trendy. Highly recommend the eggplant parmigiana.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a winnerNot my first time there.
They always manage to top the previous experience.
Keep it up...6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent Italian food, serviceWorth every lire! Always accomodating. Never an attitude. Always calm and pleasant. And the food is perhaps the best in Toronto. Staff are knowledgeable and rarely do you hear "no we can't".6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBuca e delizioso!Buca was recommended by a friend, and didn't fail to impress. Taking italian cuisine to a gourmet level more akin to french bistro style cooking/presentation (and serving sizes), rather than your typical 'ma n pop' italian restaurant (not that these aren't also fabulous). All menu items seem to have a unique twist, creating dishes that you would not find anywhere else. The falvour combinations are to die for, and every server seems to be a sommelier in the making- very informative and helpful, not to mention friendly. Located just off King St. W., Buca manages to create an intimate and quieter environment than one could imagine in such a busy district. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a different take on Italian cuisine.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique and MemorableThis restaurant really exceeds expectations. Even upon walking in I felt like I was in for a treat.
For apps, the salumi board is a must along with the bread knots, which were flavorful alone, and when mixed with the meats, cheeses, and purees - amazing.
For mains, I had the bison clods which was so full of flavor even though it was mainly a meat dish with minimal sides. The bison was tender with wild mushrooms and a "pork rind" looking crispy topping, served on dark greens and a light puree. My date had the double-stuffed duck foie-gras ravioli dumplings, and the flavors were so intricate and delicious. It was cooked to perfection and almost melted upon biting.
Will definitely return. Be sure to reserve at least 1 week early!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZINGI love italian food, and have been to Italy on MANY occasions, but Buca doesn't compare to ANYTHING else! They have an endless selection of cheeses and meats, so much so that their menu changes daily to accomodate it all. The pizza is outstanding (if they have the truffled burratta cheese, do not miss out) the pastas are amazing, but another notable dish is the eggplant tower, I need one to my self ever time i am there... and I dont usually eat eggplant!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentionGreat food in creative combinations and with close attention to composition and presentation. Everyone on staff was paying close attention and none of our needs or wants were unmet.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service, great foodThe waiter was awesome and really took time to explain the menu and offer great suggestions. The service really set the tone for the dinner. All in all a great meal that lives up to the hype.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible pastaI recently dined at Buca and enjoyed every aspect of my dinner from the selection of cheeses, to the light and flavourful dessert and most importantly my tremendous main. The double stuffed goat cheese and duck foie gras ravioli was one of the most delicious pastas I have ever enjoyed. I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to friends and colleagues.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointingService was excellent! The food was tasty, fresh, innovative, and reasonably priced.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing PlaceThe food is fantastic, the staff are wonderful, great atmosphere and vibe. Have been several times and will continue to be a guest!!! Bravissimo!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here is phenomenalThe food here is phenomenal for traditional Italians like myself...very flavourful...The majority of the food is priced appropriately....Serving sizes are again, appropriate..if you eat a lot, you will be hungry in an hour or so.....the flavour of the food is impeccable...
I was disappointed with Buca's wine prices...as a wine maker and collector myself, I noticed mark ups in prices of some bottles well over 400%.....the cheapest bottle in the restaurant is $70....in actuality, a $70 bottle here is $20 at the LCBO.....
It would be nice if they had more affordable priced wine to match the affordable and delicious food....
I would go back for the food in a heart beat.....i would just pre-drink lol...5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting menu and wine pairingslots of fun! Portions were not large, but with so many courses, we were relieved. We would recommend the tasting menu to foodies and gourmets4/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
